My post entry link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/fashion/princess-style-flower-high-heels-tutorial

Flower high heels are very popular in Japanese pop culture in the last couple years and the trend doesnt seem like is dying down at all. Making these floral accessories has become one of my favorite thing to do since I started DIY. About 15 minutes of your time and a hot glue gun can totally change your wardrobe from casual to fancy.



My tutorial will show you how to re-purpose your old heels and add some new flavor with minimum cost and tools. All you really need is a pair of shoe or heels, some plastic flower and a hot glue gun. This is a beginners level project so no other skills or tools are needed. Just 15 minutes of your time and about a 10 dollars budget, you will be able to make yourself a lovely pair of kawaii princess high heels. Compare to the prices in store, this lesson can save you more than $40 (USD).

So pretty.  I am curious as to why you put new insoles?  Also what make of glue gun did you use? I have had bad experiences with them in the past - basically they gum up after a few uses and I end up throwing them away.  At least it seems to work for you.  Those shoes have turned out very dainty and princess-like.

I added new insoles because the original ones were missing and it look horrible, plus there were old glue residue so I need a layer that can cover the area and make it more comfortable for wearing.

I don't really remember the brand of my glue gun, but I know you it is for sale in Jo-ann, Michael's and other craft store for about 10 dollars. I had an old one earlier without trigger, but i really like the new one because you can control the amount and it is a lot safer. I love using glue gun, it is easy to use and the bond is strong, perfect for shoe fixing and art projects.

Here's a picture of the one I use.

Please don't take offense, but those shoes before were hideous! ...But the after are so beautiful! I would definitely buy those in a store if I saw them. You have motivated me to try to find something with potential at my local thrift shop  Cheesy  And I love your pictorials!
